THE YIN AND YANG OF OBESITY

My plan… I have meals ordered from an online dietitian, the daily meals are broken down into 3 meals with 2 snacks.  The calories range between 1100-1500 calories.  I believe it's based on some type of cycle that is supposed to prevent plateauing and induce weight loss.  I…
